Police Still Looking to Identify Girl in 1979 Murder

  • Text size: + -

33 years later and the Livingston County Sheriff's Department is still looking for answers in connection to the murder of a girl found dead in Caledonia.

The Sheriff's Department is asking the public for help in identifying the girl police agencies call "Livingston County's Jane Doe."

The girl was found shot to death in a corn field just off Route 20 in November of 1979. Deputies say the girl is believed to have been between 13 and 19 years old, had dark hair with blonde highlights and brown eyes. They say she was about 5'3" and 120 pounds.

She appeared to have a good tan, leading investigators to think she was from a different region of the country.

Back in May of this year, new forensic technology turned up traces of pollen on her body only found in the American Southwest.

The Sheriff's Department asks anyone with information to call them at 585-243-7100. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
